Rolex Opening A New Boutique In Jounieh

Posted By :


As surprising as it may seem, Rolex is opening a new boutique in the old souk of Jounieh. The new boutique is a old renovated house and is located in the old souks of Jounieh right before the resort Amwaj. I have to say I never expected Rolex to open in Jounieh. I bet the monthly rent they are paying there is less expensive than a Rolex watch haha!

Rolex has a branch also in Beirut on Weygand street.


The Little Syrian Kid Got Beaten Again By His Uncle …

I just saw on Plus961 that Al Jadeed interviewed the little kid that got beaten up as well and his mother. Weirdly enough, the mother told the reporter (Start At Minute 9:00) that she took the little kid to her brother who beat him up as well after hearing the story!

Unfortunately, there are almost half a million Syrian in Lebanon struggling to get into schools and forced to work for a living. Many of them are victims of sexual abuse and violence as well.

Arz Water

I spotted the new slogan on Facebook and I thought it was a new bottled mineral water brand but it looks like it’s been out for years. That’s pretty weird because I never spotted it in any supermarket. I’ve tried most of the brands we have in Lebanon and my favorite has always been Tannourine.

Little Abbas’ Father Apprehended By The Lebanese Police

Posted By :


Based on reports from Al-Jadeed and LBCI, the security forces have identified the people behind the video that went viral earlier today and was showing a young kid beating another child and being encouraged by his parents. Moreover, LBCI just reported that the Internal Security Forces’ cyber crimes bureau raided the al-Raml al-Ali area in Dahieh to arrest the father of the minor Abbas. T.

This is great news and I am glad this video went viral and these people were arrested. I don’t get if it was the father or some relative or a total stranger who did this, they must be punished accordingly because this is a crime against an innocent child.

ISF Clarification Regarding The Highway Picture That Went Viral

I am sure you’ve all seen the above picture by now. As confirmed by the ISF, it is not a fake photo but a real one and there are reasons why the ISF motorist did not stop the young man.

Here’s what the ISF had to say about this incident:
- On 13/07/2014 one of the Baabda ISF motorists was on the Naameh highway, when a civilian started making stunts with his bike right next to him. The policeman ordered him to stop the stunts several times but the biker didn’t cooperate. That’s when the policeman tried to arrest him but the biker sped away and the policeman stayed behind for safety purposes.
- Necessary disciplinary measures were taken against the policeman.
- Baabda ISF branch is committed to the safety of the drivers and is constantly patrolling the “Costa Brava – Khaldeh” highway.

I think the policeman should have chased the young man or called for reinforcements, but I love the fact that the ISF actually investigated the matter and clarified the issue through its social media channels. I really hope they will keep on listening to what the people have to say and take actions, because that’s the only way to build (a much needed) trust between the police and the citizens.
